Well what a week for Trevor Bayne and the 0 people that obviously picked him, which is a good reason why this is a practice week, that was I can see stuff like this and make new rules:
If you choose a driver that is not running for the Sprint Cup, I will calculated how many points they would have gotten and give that to you. This is all free of charge of course.
Anyways, what a week for the guy, and what a week for Daytona (although a lot of drivers went down in flames, that's why I don't like Daytona to be an official week toward elimination.) Anyways lets get to the standings and see how well you guys (and girl) did (or didn't do).
1.) Edwardsfan- 81 (Carl Edwards ended up being the best pick, big surprise as to who picked him.)
2.) Tigersman- 80 (+2 bonus) (Once again proves he's the king at picking handicap drivers... or was that boredatwork, either way, he's really good at making good picks.)
3.) Fsu1dogs- 79 (+2 bonus) (The doghouse is back, and Martin paid off.)
4.) Roushfenwayguy- 69 (+2 bonus)
5.) Spikesgator- 67 (+2 bonus)
6.) Foreplus- 61
7.) Fogducker- 58
8.) Sfrye- 57
9.) Bored at Work- 53 (Handicaps and Menard save the Jeff Burton pick.)
10.) RAK- 52 (+2 bonus) (All in all, it could have been worse for JGR.)
11.) Bradman- 50
12.) River Rat- 46 (Smith was a great choice... as for Harvick...)
13.) Mikeyfan- 45 (well, at least you had handicaps right?)
14.) D2Moo- 31
15.) ILL55INI- 27 (Sorry that I forgot you : /)
16.) Chokin Colts- 22 (+2bonus) (really choked up this time with two good drivers gone bad.)
17.) Berlyn- 17 (+2 bonus) (After such a good week for RCR, everything went down in flames for them.)
18.) Section- 15 (+2 bonus) (Well... at least this session doesn't count.)
19.) Fredneck- 0 (Usually, i would give random autopicks, but considering that this session doesn't count, I decided not to : /)
All in all, not too bad for Daytona, considering that a lot of people had secondary picks to redeem one of their others. Anyways, there is one more week to try to get bonus points, and two more to get into the game. Really though, we need people into the game, we do meet the minimum to start the game right now, but that's it, we only meet the minimum! And if Fredneck doesn't show again... well maybe I could do something with the save later in the season, but all in all its going to be really hard to make this game fun in the chase session without more people, so people one and all come and play this game, lol.
1st place this session gets +4 to the next session.
2nd place gets +3
3rd place gets +2
That should be good, now lets get to the handicap lists:
+3 handicap: 13th through 20th
Juan Pablo Montoya
+5 handicap: 21st through 28th
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Martin Truex Jr.
+7 handicap: 29th through 35th
Sam Hornish Jr.
+10 handicap (anyone who is below 35th )
